Jessica Mauboy 10 Fast Facts, News, Biography, Wiki
In late 2008, Mauboy moved from Darwin to Sydney, ahead of the release of her debut studio album Been Waiting.
In January 2009, she began a long-distance relationship with Themeli “Magoo” Magripilis, a soccer player and council worker of Greek descent, who was born and raised in Darwin.
Magripilis played for the Darwin soccer league’s club Hellenic Athletic, the same club that Mauboy’s younger sister Sophia played for. After seven years of long distance dating, Magripilis relocated from Darwin to Sydney in September 2016 and moved in with Mauboy.
The couple wed in Darwin on 9 July 2022. When she is not working, Mauboy returns to Darwin to spend time with her family. She is an avid fan of NRL side North Queensland Cowboys.
Jessica Hilda Mauboy was born on August 4, 1989 in Darwin, Northern Territory to Ferdy and Therese.
Her father, an electrician, came from West Timor island, Indonesia, while her mother is from the indigenous Kuku Yalanji people in the rainforest regions of Far North Queensland, Australia.
She is the fourth child of her parents and has three older sisters – Sandra, Jenny and Catherine – and one younger sister Sophia. She attended Wulagi Primary School and Sanderson High School in Darwin, but dropped out of school when she was only eleven years old.
She was raised in a musical household, which has been described as the “noisiest house on the block”; the whole family was passionate about music, with her mother often singing and her father playing guitar.
She herself sang in the local church choir with her grandmother Harriett since she was very young.
At the age of 14, she participated in the Telstra ‘Road to Tamworth’ competition at the 2004 Tamworth Country Music Festival in Tamworth, New South Wales and won the first iteration of the competition.
Winning the grand prize of a single-recording contract with Sony Music Australia, she released a country-inspired rendition of ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’ by Cyndi Lauper, but lacking further opportunities, returned from Sydney to Darwin.
In January 2009, Jessica Mauboy became involved in a long-distance relationship with Themeli “Magoo” Magripilis, a soccer player and council worker of Greek descent.
Born and raised in Darwin, he played for the soccer league’s club Hellenic Athletic, which Mauboy’s younger sister Sophie also played for.
Mauboy, who has been living in Sidney since late 2008, doesn’t get to meet her boyfriend very often, who still lives in Darwin.
However, whenever she is not working, she visits Darwin to spend time with her family and her boyfriend.
She is also a philanthropist who supports various charities in Australia and as an ambassador for the Sony Foundation, has participated in many fundraising events for youth-related causes.
